Why is Inselect not a cloud service?

The whole-drawer scans and similar images that are generated by digitisation of museum collections are typically very large - TIFF files between 600MB and 800MB are common. The transmission times and storage costs of dealing with such files make a cloud based infrastructure impractical, given our resources.
